Cancer in Australia 2010: an overview and Cancer in Australia 2010: in brief (AIHW)

Cancer in Australia: an overview, 2010 provides a comprehensive overview of national statistics on cancer in Australia. The report presents the latest available statistics on cancer overall, as well as on many individual types of cancers, and it includes information on incidence, mortality, survival, prevalence, burden of cancer, hospitalisations, and national cancer screening programs.

Between 1982 and 2007, cancer incidence increased 27%, largely due to an aging population. However, cancer deaths during this time declined 16%. Mortality rates for Australian Indigenous peoples were considerably higher for all cancers.
